Risotto & Mushrooms, I Hope You Are Well, News and Tears are tracks composed in October/November 2009 ... memory of a meeting and a concert with MCVulcano, AQM Abhorrent and Beauty ... sounds refer to an atmosphere of intense knowledge and friendship, an exchange of lives in another possible world: the world of sounds.

I call this process ¨real time compositions¨ as I never have any ideas or plans before the actual recording starts...

"parede que me toca" reunites three works: "mirrita": From the sound of the machine, other sounds are perceived as organic. They are not, but the machine is built by man. The silence interrupts the machine. The animal deflagrates. It challenges it but it is not freed from it. The machine is there. So is the human; "comoção": It begins with a blow that turns into a wave of noise. Another comes. The noise reveals itself human and makes us feel something;... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Experimental, Electronic, Noise, Creative Commons, Black Square

"Style of this album is a Poem core. Based on the impact of the Japanese sub-culture (anime, music, comedy, game, radio) it was created in a room of small dark home. It is said to emerge from the magnificent strain of day-to-day trivial matters. In this album, abstract language has been used in addition to the Japanese. Even a man speaking in Japanese when listening will not understand half. I believe that there is value in that kind of chaos." - BOOL Topics: Experimental, Electronic, Poem Core, Spoken Word, Ambient, Abstract, Creative Commons, Black Square

Fescal’s recent wayward plunge into the dominion of dark experimental music demonstrates that not only is he a deft of beatless dark ambient drones but of melodic dark electron-organic music as well. The title track “Ginger Baker” is a noisy venture into an opaque world of undulating drones thundering above subtle textures of electronics and samples. The aptly named “Vulgar and Kitsch” follows with the catchy babble of strong synth and keyboard samples along with heavy crackles and...
